NEWARK, N.J., May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Center for Real Estate at Rutgers Business School will host a conference on June 13 to examine how some of the major issues and shifts in policy will affect the allocation of capital to real estate around the world.
Kenneth Caplan, senior managing director and global chief investment officer for real estate at Blackstone, will offer his insights during a keynote speech at the event. He will be followed by two panels comprised of senior investment professionals from regional and national platforms who will provide their perspectives on the topic.
Professionals in real estate are invited to attend Where Will the Money Go? The Allocation of Capital to Real Estate in Global, National and Local Markets to gain more understanding of how economic and political uncertainty in different parts of the world may impact the real estate industry.
The keynote speaker, Kenneth Caplan, has been involved in more than $100 billion of real estate acquisitions and initiatives in the U.S., Europe and Asia since joining Blackstone in 1997. In addition to Caplan's expertise, Julia Coronado, president and founder of Macro Policy Perspectives, and a blogger for the Center for Real Estate, will deliver a presentation explaining the changing global economic conditions.
Kevin Riordan, executive director of the Center for Real Estate will moderate a panel consisting of Todd Everett, senior managing director, Principal Real Estate; Mark Wilsmann, managing director, MetLife Real Estate and Kevin Smith, managing director and Head of the Americas, PGIM Real Estate.
A second panel will provide the regional perspective from Kevin Cummings, president and CEO of Investors Bancorp, Inc.; Anthony Labozzetta, CEO of Sussex Bancorp; Chris Martin, chairman, president and CEO, Provident Bank; and Paula Mandell, senior vice president, M&T Bank Corp. The discussion will be moderated by Professor Morris Davis, academic director for the Center for Real Estate.
"There is unprecedented turmoil in China and in Europe, and the political and economic situation in the U.S. is very unsettled," Davis said. "These developments have added both downside and upside risk to yields and pricing for real estate. For this reason, the allocation and availability of capital right now is the single most important thing we can talk about with our advisory board, our emerging leaders and the real estate industry in New Jersey."
"We are honored to have some of the most influential international, national and local decision-makers discuss these topics with us," Morris said. "This is a must-see event."
The conference will be held at the Short Hills Hilton on Tuesday, June 13, from 7:30 a.m. until noon. Early bird registration is underway for $195.00. Register here: http://bit.ly/2opw5TT
